I have always been fascinated about all the beautiful things in the nature and rainbows are such a spectacular view. Today I had such a pleasure to be able to experience it from my window and it was a magical moment.
My boyfriend and I were sitting in the sofa talking while it was raining outside and going out was the last thought that would come to our mind on such a rainy day. Suddenly the weather changed and when we looked out the view on the picture below was what met our eyes. We had been busy all day with work and study and therefor we considered this a perfect opportunity to do something romantic together.
We went out not knowing where we were suppose to go. While we were walking we agreed on stopping by the supermarket to buy something to eat since we both were a bit hungry. We did not know what to buy and we were feeling a bit tired of the Norwegian food. While we were walking around in the supermarket we were looking at all kinds of food. Actually I suggested a really typical Norwegian dish to my boyfriend but then he looked at me with sad eyes and said “no not another old Norwegian dish once again”haha.
My boyfriend Johan is pure Norwegian or that is at least what his passport says. If you will ask him you would not get that answer and he is sure that somewhere in his family, there has to be some mediterranean haha. He has travelled a lot to Italy and he has fallen in love with Italian culture and food. When he discovered the Italian prosciutto he could not resist it and went straight to find some Italian cheese as well. I was a bit sceptic since I had never tried that appetiser before but decided to trust him for this time. I am sceptical when it comes to food since if I have get used to something I like to stay with it. On other things I am very open minded but not when it comes to food haha. This has changed a bit after I met Johan though.
On our way home we stopped by a shop run by foreigners which sells all kinds of food that you don’t find on traditional supermarkets in Norway. They sell some amazing olives that we have fallen in love with. We thought that we had bought the regular ones but the look tricked us and we ended up buying the spicy ones instead. Anyway, they were tasty as well despite having to drink some extra water haha.
When we came home we enjoyed the appetiser and I must admit that I loved the food that my boyfriend decided for us today and now I can add another thing on my list of the food that I really like. 🙂
How are you preferences about food? Do you like to experience new tastes or do you prefer to stay with what is known to you?
